Leisha J. Cuddihy, Ph.D., F.L.P., a fully licensed psychologist, has recently joined Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services in the behavioral medicine department. Her specialty is behavioral sleep medicine. She’s the only professional in Grand Rapids to offer these services.

Dr. Cuddihy received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona, Tucson, Ariz.  She trained with three of the top experts in behavioral sleep medicine in the United States.
